now. you know what was a really bad time? the george w. bush presidency was a really bad time. and not just if you were a liberal and you disagreed with george w. bush, just if you were an american, the george w. bush presidency, the bush/cheney years were bad years for us as a country. the national ubunemployment rate went from a little over 4% when he took office to nearly 8% by the time he left. we went from a budget surplus of more than $200 billion to a budget deficit of more than a trillion dollars. after decades of u.s. household income climbing during the 1980s and 1990s, it fell off a cliff in the bush years. after poverty declined in the 1980s and declined in the 1990s, in the bush years, it went up. by the time he left office, 6 million more americans were added to the rolls of americans who didn't have health insurance. wall street in the bush years collapsed. the country was plunged into the worst depression since the great depression in the 1930s. the bush/cheney years were a disaster. they were also a series of embarrassments. remember when they were going to bu
of the united states shooting a guy in the face. there's a reason george w. bush left office in january 2009 with the lowest approval rating for an outgoing president since galt started asking that question back in the 1930s. and frankly, the vice president, dick cheney, would have killed to get numbers that high. his approval rating was 13% when he left office. part of the headwind that john mccain had running in 2008, trying to run as a republican after george w. bush and dick janney was george w. bush and dick cheney. the country was happy to see them go for understandable reasons. four years after the bush/cheney administration, the new republican party nominee, mitt romney, has made precisely zero public appearanced with george w. bush or dick cheney. this is still the most interesting thing in american politics. the reconstruction of the republican party post-george w. bush and post-dick cheney is as yet incomplete and still the most interesting thing to watch. hot is the new republican party going to be after that? what is the new republican party leadership going to be after them? al

that could come back and bite us. remember george w. bush's drunk driving arrest that was revealed the weekend before the 2000 campaign and came close to costing him the election? romney has smart people. they did this with him. things like the swiss bank account and the cayman islands and bermuda and all that stuff came up, and the tax rates, and whether he is going to reveal them. romney went right through the stop sign. he, who did not want to discuss it with this source and with money, so deep, so pervasive, that this is a man who has been running for president for most of the 21st century. is not something that just jumped out this the -- not just something that jumped out on him . as far as jobs are concerned, one figure to remember -- more jobs created last year under barack obama in the private sector than in the eight years of george w. bush's presidency. >> even "the wall street journal" editorial page says romney has squandered the summer because he let obama defined him as a wealthy elitist, and then they excoriated him for being shown in a jet ski in front of his mansi
george w. bush's drunk driving arrest that was revealed that began before the 2000 campaign and came close to costing him the election. romney has more people. they did this with him -- as smart people. they did this with him. things like the swiss bank accounts, bermuda, luxemburg, the tax rates -- romney went right through the stop sign. his self-absorption with money was so deep and pervasive -- this is a man who has been running for president for most of the 21st century. this is not something that just jumped out at him. he has allowed barack obama to put him squarely on the defensive. as far as jobs are concerned, one figure to remember. there were more jobs created last year under barack obama in the private sector that under the eight years of george w. bush's presidency in the private sector. >> even "the wall street journal" editorial-page said that romney has squandered this summer because he let obama define him as a wealthy elite is, and then they excoriated him for allowing him to be shown on his jets be in front of the mansion on the lake. >> the president's plan is no
in texas or he worked for many, many years. he helped nurture george w. bush and help him get elected. governor of texas, then was beyond his presidential election as well. he is very, very strong in the texas energy industry, knows many wealthy people there. he is, by all accounts, a terrific fund-raiser. and someone -- wealthy people enjoy talking about politics with him. this is not a science. this is an art. it is a question of personal relationships. karl rove is very skilled and those things. >> what about his relationship with romney? >> they have no long history of friendship or alliance. but karl rove has become basically the embodiment of the establishment of republican party in the same way that romney is sort of the alternative to the tea party, rove is the alternative. rove basically helped push the tea party candidates to one side. he was important in 2010, 2011 criticizing people like michelle bachmann, herman cain, and basically helping us sort out the republican field so that romney could emerge. and this is because karl rove and his allies saw romney as the most elec
the previous president, george w. bush, who openly shunned any invitations to the naacp convention. but there was one moment where mitt romney delivered an actual policy position. the reception, that was not very warm. >> if our goal is jobs, we have to stop spending over a trillion dollars more than we take in every year. and so to do that, i'm going to eliminate every non-essential expensive program i can find. that includes obamacare, and i'm going to work to reform and save -- [ boos ] >> 14 seconds. that's how long mitt romney was booed for saying he will repeal obamacare. reporters on the scene said the reaction was stunning. >> i have not heard that kind of sustained booing for mitt romney during the course of this campaign up until what happen today at the naacp. i don't think it really is sort of overstating it. this was perhaps one of the most negative reactions mitt romney has had in the course of his 2012 presidential campaign. >> after the speech, romney said he expected to be booed by the crowd. he told fox news the crowd was with him more than they were against him.
george w. bush, george w. bush, george w. bush. car going back in the ditch and conde is driving it. >> dana: think of the video. >> andrea: exactly. one romney source told me months ago the goal of their campaign was to do no harm. and i think if they are going to do no harm, they will go with a safe bet, someone like rob portman, someone like -- >> eric: can i? >> andrea: very boring. >> eric: that is the problem with the romney campaign. >> bob: right. >> eric: i mentioned in the "a" block. they are defending boos, defending bank, defending bain. >> dana: not alcohol. >> eric: get off the defensehe . >> bob: you don't -- >> greg: they need alan west. it would blow everybody up. >> bob: it certainly would. >> dana: including bob's head. >> bob: if you are trying to become president don't play it safe. if you are incumbent, you say yes. the way they are doing this, if they take portman, it's not, vice presidents don't give you much. we know that. maybe a few points. rubio could give you a few points and win florida. the rest of the people -- >> andrea: playing a safe is a theme we
-one u. s. presidents combined from george washington to george w. bush, he has racked up more debt in 2-1/2 years as president barack obama racked up more deficits than george w. bush in all eight years combined and george w. bush was fighting two wars and barack obama had more deficits and two years than george bush did in eight years. he socialized health care which the congressional budget office says is going to sway 800,000 jobs but more importantly for young people for us it is going to raise our premiums because in obamacare it is tough to weigh a provision that says insurance companies can no longer very price according to one's age or health status. insurance companies look at us and see again healthy individual and say you got to pay the same rate as your parents and grandparents. a huge redistribution of wealth from young to old and the left celebrates it. youth unemployment at historic highs. you have almost double the national average with those 18 and older and you look at the key to unemployment. many of you are in this category if not all of you and in america right now
attempts to reach out to the hispanic community. on policy, george w. bush advocated for comprehensive immigration reform. he reached out to democrats like ted kennedy to reach out the broken immigration system in a bipartisan way. he failed, of course, but at least he tried on the policy. and on politics the bush team did so much outreach to the hispanic community that he managed to increase his share of the hispanic vote from 2000 to 2004 when he was dramatically less popular overall. george w. bush got 42% of the hispanic vote in 2004. mitt romney on the other hands, in terms of policy, he's trying to appeal to the public by proposing his immigration policy. he calls it self deportation. he's promising to follow the lead of arizona, of all places, for national immigration law. that sort of outreach has earned him an appeal with hispanic voters that is, look at that, 40 points below president obama. he's even down 18 points from what george w. bush did with hispanic voters. the romney campaign is trying to move the hispanic voters. want to know how? they released this ad yesterday. i
. >> and talk about the presidency, then you turn in and get what joe was talking about with george w. bush who can't think -- says he can't think of one. everyone in their own lives knows that you make mistakes all the time. all of us tell ourselves a story to explain those mistakes. >> john, the whole thing, he wasn't admitting a mistake. he was taking a perceived weakness of him, all fluff and no substance, and turning it upside down. he is saying i'm the guy getting the job you done but sorry -- i don't think there was weakness in that. >> he does believe this is a mistake. he's not playing a game here. >> jump in. >> joe? >> jon meacham, i want to follow up and underline what you said. i remember one time, again because i'm a dork, i was very young at the time, but i remember following the 1976 republican primary campaign. ronald reagan was asked a question out on the campaign trail, his response, i don't know. >> yeah. >> and everybody just sat there for a second and then they started applauding. it was some of reagan's people said it was a -- it was just a special moment that connected h
be appointed attorney general by president george w. bush. in february 2001, in his first joint address to congress, president george w. bush said that racial profiling is, quote, wrong, and we will end it in america. end of quote. we take the title of today's hearing from the promise president bush made that night 11 years ago. in june, 2001, our former colleague, senator russ fine fwoe gold of wisconsin, held the senate's second and most recent hearing on racial profiling. i was there. there was bipartisan agreement about the need to end racial profiling. then came 9/11. in the national trauma that followed, civil liberties came face to face with national security. arab americans, american muslims, south asian americans faced national origin and religious profiling. to take one example, the special registration program targeted arab and muslim visitors, requiring them to promptly register with the ins or face deportation. at the time, i called for the program to be terminated. there were serious doubts if it would help us in any way to combat terrorism. terrorism experts have since co
romney. secondly, her whole connection is with george w. bush, whose foreign policy and war in iraq are considered a disaster. they cost the republican party both houses in 2006, and the presidency in 2008. why would you do it? what exactly does she bring some what state does she bring? >> because of the cabinet post that she held, the fact that she worked for sandy berger, colin powell, bob zoellick. >> she didn't work for sandy berger, did she? >> she was part of sandy berger's generation. >> i don't think she's that old. >> i'm not an authority on herbicide okay grief. she worked at the hoover institution. the woman is a brilliant woman. >> when we were with nixon in '68, there was a point where he was way down. he was tied with humphrey, and you take the safe pick. >> is it safe to say that everybody on this panel is poo- pooing, except me, a possible candidacy? >> yes. >> as a running mate? >> not as a rung mate. she's phot got many great qualifications but not for this ticket. >> not for this particular. >> poo-pooing. >> okay who will be romney's vice presidential running mat
. well below the 11% george w. bush received when he ran against john kerry in 2004. now, the president's support and his approval ratings remain high among african-americans, but democrats are worried about turnout. and romney's hoping his economic message will resonate, at least to the point that voters aren't motivated to turn out against him. jan crawford, cbs news, houston. >>> today the cbs news, charlie rose will sit down with an exclusive interview with president and mrs. obama which you'll see portions beginning on friday on "cbs this morning" and then on cbs sunday morning. >>> congressman's jesse jackson's unexplained absence from the house continues to raise questions this morning. his office says he's receiving intensive medical treatment for a mood disorder. tara mergener reports from washington, d.c. >> representative jesse jackson, jr., has been out on a leave of absence for more than a month now with little explanation as to why. more than two weeks after abruptly leaving his office issued a cryptic statement saying mr. jackson was suffering from exhaustion. a week late
earned 88% of the african-american vote against george w. bush. >>> still, some members of the audience gave romney credit for simply taking the time to address the convention. but that doesn't mean the audience agreed with what he was saying. >> i'm going to eliminate every nonessential expensive program i can find. that includes obama care, and i'm going to work to reform and save -- [ crowd booing ] >> romney said he anticipated a tough response from the crowd and following the speech, he told a group of donors quote, your friends who like obama care, you remind them of this -- if they want more stuff from the government, tell them to go vote for the other guy. more free stuff. but don't forget, nothing is really free. it has to be paid for by people in the private sector creating goods and services, end quote. the obama campaign said in statement at the naacp leaders in the african-american community recognize the devastating impact mitt romney's policies would have on working families. >>> a new campaign ad from the obama campaign accuses romney of supporting tax breaks for special
be a very good thing for the country. just to remind, when president obama and george w. bush took office and the unemployment rate was 4.2% and when he left it was almost double that and the tax cuts at the high end were not helpful in terms of deficit reduction and job creation. thank you all very much. >>> coming up later today here on c-span3, senate confirmation hearing for a postal service nominee. president obama has nominated stephen crawford to serve on the postal board of governors. he's a public policy professor at george washington university. that hearing gets under way at 2:30 p.m. eastern and we have it live here on c-span3. this weekend governors from across the country meet in williamsburg, virginia, for the national meeting of the governors association and it begins at 10:30 eastern with the discussion on medicaid with iowa governor terry branstat and illinois governor pat quinn and at 2:30 in the afternoon saturday maryland governor martin o'malley and wyoming governor matthew meade part of the roundtable on issues. the annual meeting live this weekend on c-span. >>> hi
presidents not doing this. but george w. bush did it, john mccain did it and presidential candidates did it. i think republicans need to end this tradition of appearing before the naacp to try and reach black voters. the type of black voters who may be open to voting republican are not at naacp conventions. you can go into communities and visit churches and visit small businesses. you can visit charter schools and so forth. you can advertise on black radio and black television programming. that's how you can reach people. there is no need to go before groups like this and try and seek black votes that way. i don't think it has been a very good strategy. >> what about getting credit? does he get credit foregoing into the liberal group like this saying, look, here is my argument on health care. here is my argument on education. get credit for bravery for reaching out and saying these are my convictions. you need to hear these. >> i just think his time and effort would be better spent on more persuadable people than who he is addressing there. he said all of the right things. >> amazing. >> th
. he is a former speech writer for george w. bush. i would wonder whether the romney campaign wanted to be booed at the naacp. that whole line, could he maybe been aiming at his own base with that one? >> i asked the romney campaign that very question when we had a chance to talk with them. they did not respond to that question but were peppered with so many questions i think they were having trouble answering all of them. they didn't have time to answer all of them. i will say that mitt romney did get a lot of conservative props on twitter and social media for coming to this group and sticking to his principles and policy positions. he did not tailor his speech. he said he would repeal the president's signature legislative achievement, that is the health care law and tipped off a number of other iemts. and so even the leadership of the naacp that i talked to after this event were saying mitt romney showed a lot of courage in coming here today. >> speaking of props you eluded to this. this is something in which romney got a much better response. take a listen. >> any policy that lift
his, you know, republican predecessor, george w. bush, just at the end, said, i'm not going to go, and forbade his schedulers to move him through to the protocols of showing up at the big, black conventions. but on the other hand, i thought, my god, i have to be grateful that you would take me seriously as a citizen. that i have somehow proved to be outside the arc and literally the pale and pigment of the larger american political makeup that somehow you have to condescend, and i should be grateful that you took me seriously, as a voting constituency, as a human being? and i thought, also, about all of the meanings of race that circulate around mitt romney. the fact that as a mormon, his own particular region had a racial animus and a hostility towards african-american people. and i remember mormons coming to my door, telli me about the cursing of a certain kind of black lineage, but despite that, we could serve in some kind of subsection of a junior capacity, a junior associate, and also ran. and so i thought about that. but the fact that he was moving forward. but he wasn't rea
, he had this little george w. bush kind of smirk on his face, like he kind of like he knew he was going to get it, he kind of wanted it and sort of enjoyed it a little bit. >> well, i thought -- >> i don't agree with it but he went in there wanting to get booed for something. he didn't want to just get -- >> i'm not sure of that. i think this is really as david said, a replay partly of 2000. when you had george bush who went out as a compassionate conservative and he wasn't really trying to be necessarily compassionate to black voters. he was really trying to tell swing voters, swing white voters, independents, that you know, i'm not as bad as you think i am, nor is this party. i think this is a part of a replay in a very closely contested race. >> and it's worth noting that george w. bush eventually gave up on relations with the naacp saying he had a virtually nonexistent relationship with them. i do wonder if it does change the minds of independent voters who saw that. the best moments were when romney was being self-effacing, even in the beginning when he said he was speaki
george w. bush did in 2004 in trying to define john kerry. they are doing it on certificate rides in a way we've not seen before with the amount of money and ground game behind it. they've made that choice. whether it works or not we have four months to see. it's totally different. megyn: why do they care about iowa's six electoral votes with all due respect. >> if he can put together the traditional republican states in this election the must win ohio and florida and thanks to karl rove plus one, one more, then mitt romney wins and iowa has got enough. megyn: you're seeing the numbers there is a piece out of the washington times from yesterday or today talking about how president obama is down with young voters, he's down with black voters, he's down with low-income white voters, he's down with post graduate white women and so all of these sort of, you know, erosions in his support are leading to a sense of concern about states that he did win handily the last time around. chris stirewalt thank you, sir. megyn: more for you now on why iowa matters so much for the president. his c
. but had's making the outreach. george w. bush did it as a candidate but then went several years without showing up at the naacp as president. >> yes, he did. i remember. he went in 2000 and never appeared again. >> yeah. i think -- i at tend he may have appeared at the naacp group. yeah, you are right. basically, though, a lot of antipathy built up over the years because of that. romney is making the outreach. he gets points for that. he also is running against the first black president. and so the fact he shows up as important. he made good points. i thought the idea of school choice is a great issue to go after the black vote with because democrats are tied to the futures union, opposed to anything involved in choice. rank and file, black folks like it. the problem was, you know, once again, he had the words but not the music. i think -- you know. in that way he -- he didn't win a lot of black votes today. >> part of romney's problem is, one, he's mitt romney. also, he's the presumptive nominee of a party that by generally speaking has either ignored african-americans or scapegoated a
